    I recently noticed that my DSi XL makes a creaking sound near the 4 buttons. It looks like that plastic 'plate' is not flush with the outer edge, and it has some 'give' and thus makes a creaking sound whenever I press on or around the buttons. Has anyone else encountered this?

    Trying to figure out if I should send it in for a possible repair. I bring this up because it's coming up on the 1 year warranty so am contemplating if it is fixable etc. I just don't want them to send me a replacement system with a yellow screen as mine is somewhat closely matched...

    This happened with my old gameboys... all of 'em. I think it's just wear-and-tear. It doesn't impede you from anything gameplay-wise right?
